Food & Fitness: August 11-17

Food
I am officially going strong on the second week  of the 21 day detox challenge. You can read more about the challenge and reason I decided to do it here. The hardest part so far is giving up coffee and alcohol. Especially on the weekends! This past week I noticed that instead of reaching for fruits and vegetables I was always snacking on "safe" pre-packaged such as rice cakes, spouted bread and almond butter. They are great every once in awhile however, I felt that I was eating them at every meal. This week I am focusing on getting in natural whole grains such as beans and quinoa. Here are two side recipes I have found that will be on this week's dinner rotation. 



Fitness
This week marks the fourth training week on Insanity. Unfortunately  I am one day behind on the plan due to company coming into town this weekend. I am slowly starting to see changes in my body especially in my stomach, waist and arms. I know that there are abs somewhere under there (or maybe just a flat stomach)! What I am reminding myself daily is that my diet is a major part of the transformation process. 

You can't out train a bad diet.

  1. Ugh, yes on the diet. I can stick to a pretty constant work out routine but I have the hardest time eating clean!
